I found a wonderful recipe my aunt made, and well, improvised! That improvised recipe is the one you're looking at now! I began making these cookies in 2002, for Christmas. My entire family including all the aunts and uncles couldn't get enough of these! Since then I've made them each Christmas! If you love to bake, you might even do the same! This recipe can be doubled, to make lots of cookies for large families!
- 1 cup butter or 1 cup margarine, softened
- 1 cup golden brown sugar, firmly packed
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup nuts (optional)
